The Women's Finance Exchange: Banking the Female Economy
The Women’s Finance Exchange (WFX) is a new ADB initiative to support financial institutions and their women borrowers through innovative tech-enabled solutions, digital support, and capacity building. Despite global efforts to expand access to finance, women and women’s businesses face challenges in accessing suitable and affordable financial products. Financial institutions often miss out on opportunities to service this growing segment, which has an estimated 1 billion underserved women. The COVID-19 pandemic has disproportionately impacted women and women’s businesses, and reinforced the importance of a digital economy, which can accelerate gender equality.
